A Remarkable INN!!

5 on January 07, 2014

My wife Pat, Peter, Jeanne and my dogs Katy&Samantha and I had a wonderful stay at the Dorset. We consider this the BEST INN for great food, drink and rooms and staff and we will be retuning. Hope more folks will come and stay with you and discover a truly wonderful vacation! Once again, Thank you all. Ed Roberts

We loved this inn. The innkeepers were very nice and welcoming. The rooms were very beautiful. The food was amazing! It was wonderful to have the chef come out of the kitchen to check on how we liked our meal. The inn is full of charm and wonderful unique items. I would highly recommend this inn.
